Floriography: Experiences of Motherhood

Learn how to use the language of flowers to create a beautiful, sustainable table arrangement overflowing with meaning that reflects your personal connections to a motherly role.

Open to anyone who has feelings about what it means to be a mum. 

Interpretations and experiences of maternal parenthood are rich, varied and full of inspiration. For me, that makes them a brilliant starting point for creating meaningful floral designs. Some of my own connections to motherhood are:

  • I'm a daughter

  • I'm a witness of the fluidity of the mother/daughter relationship when impacted by dementia

  • I have experienced the loss of miscarriage

  • I am now an expectant mother, 7 months pregnant


What does motherhood mean to you?
